Working as a ski resort snowmaker these are absolutely essential gear for scrambling up and down slopes up to forty-five degrees of powder, packed snow and solid ice, depending on the day. Also ideal for climbing iced-up towers, ladders, and rocks to reach inconveniently placed snowmaking equipment. Durable, comfortable and reliable protection for long days and nights on the slopes.
Great value product,perfect for bush hunting.
Not field tested yet. But so far it's a good fit/quality. Fits boot as small as my sons size 2.5. Can also fit my adult size 9.5. Much better than rubber slip on type crampons. Now that I know this fits my son will get another pair for myself
Planning on using on Kilimanjaro next year
I have tried some other micro spikes, and this are the best. I only wish they make a better ratchet buckles. They seem to wear off to fast. This spikes have the best grip on ice, gravel, and when working on my lawn.
